Mills Update


The following advice has this morning been received from Wilmar.

Invicta Mill.

  • Crushing is about to resume on Invicta Mill’s B side following a stop overnight.
  • The diffuser chain on the B side milling train came off its sprockets about 6.30pm yesterday (Tuesday).
  • Teams worked long into the night to manually clear hot, wet bagasse from the area, and reinstall the chain.
  • While B side was down, we took the opportunity to conduct cleaning and maintenance work that was scheduled for next Tuesday.
  • Today’s loading has been reduced to 70 per cent.

Pioneer Mill

  • Lost 4.5 hours last night when the syrup tank (part of the rocket near the lab) started to leak.
  • Still loading just over 10,000t today.

Inkerman Mill

  • Inkerman is operating one boiler down today as they need to do a tube repair.
  • Loading reduced to just under 11,000t.
